Mount Dora Art Walk

We went to another Art Walk in Downtown Mount Dora last night. It was unusually cold for Central FL. I think it was in the lower to mid 40s while we were there. We're normally a lot warmer here, so we didn't stay as long as we have in the past. This Art Walk was apparently a special one, but we were unaware until we got home. Ha! Yeah, we pay attention. I guess the FL Highwaymen were there with a special exhibit in the Donnelly Building. We didn't go up that far, so we didn't see them. No problem, though. They'll be there until Sunday at 5, so we can go back.

The big party seemed to be at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. We didn't bother trying to go in because it was shoulder to shoulder already. That's not my idea of fun. Here's the Center during the day.

Next door is the Artisan Gift Shop. Isn't that the cutest sign?

My favorite new place to go is the Bowersock Gallery. The art there is just fantastic and so interesting to me. Joel and Kolby even seem to enjoy the place. It's new to Mount Dora. I believe they have a sister gallery up north somewhere.

I don't have any photos of the art. They generally frown upon taking photos of art in galleries and museums, ya know. But I did manage to get a couple photos of the guys and some Christmas decor that they've yet to take down. Which I can totally understand. It's beautiful and must have taken a lot of work to put up.

Since I didn't get any photos of myself while there, here's one I took when I got home. I couldn't let my good hair and make-up day go to waste.
